Does anybody have any recommendations for after market front seats? My wife has a neck problem and other than selling the truck I need to try and get better seating for her. We've tried medical remedies and the Doctor says that either resolve it with better seating or do not go off road in this vehicle. I tried KAB for the air suspension seats and they do not have any suitable for a 2000 Patrol. After asking at several retails outlets, the only seats that will help are the ones they sell and all others are crap. Any suggestions that help her will be welcomed.

As far a quality is concerned, I don't think you could go past Recaro or Paratus. Paratus are Aussie designed and built and Recaro's are German.
One thing to be aware of though is that all replacement aftermarket seats and more importantly their fitment, must have an engineers approval to comply with ADR's.

G'Day Andrew and Rustytruck,

Paratus can use the orginal frame and customize the seat to suit your requirements, solves both problems, good seating and no problems with ADR's, insurance, etc.

Do a search for Stratos, they have many options including air damping.. Michael

Two suggestions from someone that sympathise with the wife.
1 I went to a good motor trimmer who replaced the foam padding molded to suit the wifes back and fitted a lumber support that you just pump the right amount of air into to get comfortable.

2 When offroading get a soft cervicle collar for the wife to use.

3 (not recommended) let the wife drive the offroad bits as this way the neck does not hurt as much as when being the passenger, holding the steering wheel helps.
